Fans choice of Newcastle team v Derby County

5 years ago

Using our interactive feature,  NUFC team selector, we asked you to choose your preferred formation and starting eleven for the Newcastle team v Derby County.

The preferred collective formation chosen was 4-4-2 with a number of new signings and players who were injured at the time of that Brighton match.

Dwight Gayle a pretty much unanimous choice to play up front, with Mitrovic proving only a little more popular than Murphy to play alongside him.

Mohamed Diame excelled in a free role behind lone striker Ayoze Perez against Brighton but in their overall choices, fans chose him to return to the right wing position for this Derby game to accommodate the two strikers.

Matt Ritchie was a no-brainer up front, whilst the Hayden/Shelvey partnership also proved easily the most popular.

The goalkeeper and centre-back positions were straightforward for most – but it was at full-back that we see the biggest changes.

Achraf Lazaar was easily the choice to make his debut for Newcastle, with Jesus Gamez the next most popular and Dummett a distant third.

Whilst on the other side DeAndre Yedlin edged out Vurnon Anita on the right.
